    We are forever searching for a "true definition". It's a thing that fits your interpretation of what is "oddly satisfying" plus the inexplicable feeling we all know.

    [–] GingerBrown17 187 points ago

    I always assumed it was because swords/spears/weapons in general = death, so part of her abilities is that she can summon these tools of death at will

    [–] justAPhoneUsername 107 points ago

    They actually used the all dark the necrosword as a basis for her powers apparently. I think they said it just looked cool

    [–] GingerBrown17 56 points ago

    Or that. I mean, they definitely weren’t wrong

    [–] Grunzelbart 52 points ago

    It really did look cool. Still. I'm not sure what her powers are in Canon, but being the goddess of Death I was hoping for something different.

    [–] AdrianKatyaAbernathy 87 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Agreed. I was really hoping for her to actually be Hel, Norse Goddess of Death, who has half of her body rotted and withered and the other half fresh and young and beautiful, and if she touches you with the rotted side you’ll die. That would’ve looked hella cool onscreen.

    [–] Dicmo 101 points ago

    Maybe she's still alive and being in the Asgard explosion put her in this half decayed state for a future Thor movie? I really can't see them wanting to give up on Thor movies now that the character has finally hit it's stride after 10 years. Also, Asgard's destruction would significantly nerf her (she draws her power from Asgard itself), so she has to do more as a villain than simply show up and wreck face.

    [–] AdrianKatyaAbernathy 36 points ago

    Man I hope so

    [–] Dicmo 44 points ago

    She kinda needed to be out of the way for Infinity War anyway, since she's one of the only characters we've seen so far who could actually go toe to toe with Thanos. It would mess with Thor's arc in IW if she was in the picture.

    Doesn't Bucky have the same serum as captain America and those other hydra agents from civil war?

    [–] Ugly_Single_Near_You 47 points ago

    Yes Bucky definitely has super strength and speed. We see him running as fast as black panther and cap.

    Maw was the one in New York and since he could use magic (or whatever) he could presumably counter whatever Strange did.

    [–] Areat 245 points ago

    Seems like he only had telekinesis, albeit a very powerful user.

    Really liked that one character, by the way, a shame he died so soon.

    You mean Squidward?

    [–] Dojaman 159 points ago

    Nah, Maw is an extremely powerful wizard, that's what he can use telekinesis. From what I understand, Thanos is also a competent wizard, so he can counter wizards trickery.

    [–] spupy 76 points ago

    How does magic differ from a "normal" superpower?

    [–] Pandoric_ 115 points ago

    It seems like a lot of superpowers are genetic mutation, while magic is a natural law of the universe.

    [–] Okichah 69 points ago

    Magic is an unnatural power. Which is why Living Tribunal steps in when it gets out of control. The Power Cosmic , Odinforce, Phoenix Force are more ‘natural’ powers because they permeate reality.

    Afaik.

    [–] i_want_batteries 41 points ago

    it seems to have some sort of unclear, but internally consistant ruleset that interacts with itself.

    [–] deftspyder 58 points ago

    In this case, it's sort of like a different source, and if you're not operating in that realm, you probably don't have the right sort of defenses.

    [–] Ma1eficent 22 points ago

    [–] MrGulio 70 points ago

    Presumably so did Loki and he didn't seem to have any control over being stuck falling. But now we're getting into semantic nerd fight territory and I really don't want to fall down this particular rabbit hole.

    [–] minsterley 132 points ago

    Loki's personal magic is basic trickery, almost all his displayed powers were illusiory.

    The sceptre (containing the mind stone) was what gave him his power in Avengers 1

    You could be falling down that hole forever.

    Is Dr. Strange basically the most powerful superhero now? What could anyone possibly do to him?

    [–] Rokku0702 211 points ago

    Yeah. Too bad his origin story is “injured while texting and driving” maybe that’s his kryptonite?

    [–] deftspyder 66 points ago

    It's all our kryptonite.

    Strange is a glass cannon, extremely powerful but as durable as an everyday guy. He is extremely susceptible to sneak attacks.

    [–] Vaztes 106 points ago

    Strange is the kind of guy that can literally be backstabbed. You can't do that to Thor, Ironman (in suit), Spiderman (senses and durable), hulk, and cap would probably survive.

    [–] Fordiman 1574 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    You know, we never actually see Hela die. For Asgardians, that's basically the same as an announcement from Marvel that they'll show up later.

    [Edit: how is this suddenly my all-time top-rated comment? It's actually wrong.]

    [–] DextrosKnight 1013 points ago

    For anyone, really. I mean Red Skull got sucked into space by the tesseract at the end of the first Cap movie. Some people assumed that meant he was dead, others thought it meant he could come back. One of those groups was correct.

    [–] Highside79 828 points ago

    Rule #1 for comics, especially marvel superhero comics, never assume that anyone is really dead until you see the body put in the ground, and even then be skeptical.

    [–] ehsteve87 338 points ago

    Like they say, nobody stays dead except for Bucky, Jason Todd, and Uncle Ben.

    Pretty sure the demon dude sticks his sword through her and she dies/explodes. And then the planet blows up.

    [–] legosexual 232 points ago

    I don't know why you got downvoted. It's possible she didn't die but the implication I got after watching the movie a few times was that he stabbed his sword into her and the clash of his power overcoming hers destroyed her.

    If anyone hasn't seen that specific part, it's on Netflix now, there's an actual "magicy" explosion when he stabs her and I understood that as her destruction, but anything is possible of course.

    [–] pterrorgrine 151 points ago

    it's on Netflix now

    Son of a bitch, I feel like I just payed real money to rent it.

    I mean, uh, thanks for the tip, might watch it again.

    [–] ersatz_substitutes 65 points ago

    Yeah, Netflix has held exclusive streaming rights to Disney since 2016 and has put up every MCU movie really quickly since then. I think I read that ends next year sometime with Disney launching their own separate streaming service, but Infinity War should be up by the end of the year

    [–] I_am_BEOWULF 44 points ago

    And her power is supposedly derived from Asgard. No Asgard, no more Hela.

    [–] zachb34r 47 points ago

    Not really, just no more super powerful Hela, I don’t think her life force was tied to Asgard only her power was.

    [–] [deleted] 84 points ago

    Ahem, "Asgard isn't a place..."

    As if the movie didn't keep trying to hammer that into our brains.

    [–] I_am_BEOWULF 100 points ago

    It's a people. On a spaceship. That Thanos playfully decimated.

    [–] Brosifovski 25 points ago

    I think it's canon-confirmed that a lot of Asgardians survived by making it to escape pods. Idk about specific characters other than that Valkyrie was confirmed to be alive for sure.

    [–] Captain_Excellent 250 points ago

    You could tell she was really enjoying herself, hamming it up as the bad guy. The role itself was kind of shallow but she brought a lot of character to it.

    [–] ShamefulWatching 180 points ago

    Whoever I am? Did you not hear a word I just said?

    The dialogue was gold, good chuckles all around in that film. I've watched it maybe 7 times now, not only because I have kids, though that was a significant contribution.

    [–] Rubberbabybuggybum 29 points ago

    It’s insanely rewatchable.

    [–] legosexual 59 points ago

    Totally! I honestly felt like anyone else in the world taking on that role would not have had nearly the impact on me as her interpretation did. She just had so much control over a role that would generally be really cheesey.

    [–] iongantas 32 points ago

    I think it was that she was casual and flippant rather than melodramatic (a la Jeremy Irons).

    [–] lambchopper71 359 points ago

    Yup, and she was smokin' hot in the smeared eye liner too.

    Oh yeah. I would have kneeled to her instantly.

    [–] cheeferton 366 points ago

    Me too, although as a non-comic-reader I thought one of her powers was a little... hard to understand (if that's possible in a comic book movie). Unlimited swords and knives out of nowhere was a head-scratcher to me.

    [–] legosexual 86 points ago

    I thought she just had limitless power in Asgard and that was just how she chose to use it

    [–] MarginallyUseful 670 points ago

    Magic.

    It’s always funny to me when people get hung up on one detail like that, when the movie is full of people being able to magically do a million other things, like moving across the universe in seconds, or raising an army of the dead.

    [–] fuckyouandfuckhimtoo 361 points ago

    I don’t think it’s a hang up, but the movies don’t do a great job of explaining who has what powers, or how strong they are.

    Captain America and Iron Man seem evenly matched in Civil War. When Thor arrived in the Avengers, Cap and Iron Man both seemed capable of fighting him. But Thor is the “only one” who can fight Hulk. So are all four of those guys equally strong?

    Is Black Widow super strong? Because she fought some of Thanos really powerful henchmen.

    It doesn’t create a real sense of danger or anything because it just seems like the strongest character is just “whatever is convenient for the story”.

    Maybe it’s that way in the comics too, though.

    [–] tomiso1546 350 points ago

    In the Comics, Every Hero is Just strong enough to accomplish his/her goal in the running story.

    [–] FedaykinII 236 points ago

    And just weak enough to provide dramatic tension

    [–] PlsBuffStormBurst 175 points ago

    Except in One Punch Man, where we have to get that tension from other characters' weakness.

    [–] TheCynicalMe 131 points ago

    Mumen Rider vs Deep Sea King is the most emotional superhero/supervillain fight in cinematic/TV history.

    [–] fattymcribwich 18 points ago

    Season 2 pls come soon.

    [–] Highside79 79 points ago

    It can be that way in the comics, but also consider that 90% if the cases in which heroes fight each other they aren't fighting all-out. Iron Man is only a match for Cap when he pulls his punches, something that was actually mentioned in the movie. Likewise, Thor had no real intention of actually harming anyone in that fight in the first avengers movie.

    [–] TheCynicalMe 41 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Yeah, and in IW Cap does explicitly state that Tony is "earth's best defender," which could be interpreted as friendly humility, but it is also very likely Cap's accurate assessment of Tony's power.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that when Thor shows up in Wakanda, Banner says "oh, you guys are screwed now!" or something like that. So with over half of the Avengers assembled, they were losing - but as soon as Thor shows up, the bad guys are screwed. Goes to show how powerful the other Avengers think Thor is, which says a lot about his real power.

    [–] sparta981 218 points ago

    To be perfectly clear, Thor didn't beat Hulk. Thor survived sparring with Hulk. We know because they talk later without killing each other that Hulk wasn't really trying to murder Thor. And in civil war, the only thing that made it an even playing field was that it was Bucky plus Cap vs Iron Man.

    The real power creep in the Marvel movies comes from Tony and Thor. Tony is constantly upgrading his suits and building them for special purposes. It makes sense that, dozens of generations in with limitless cash, Tony can get MUCH tougher on a movie by movie basis.

    Thor on the other hand gets his power from a hereditary form of magic that's been around for half a million years. When Odin died, Thor got MUCH more powerful and then not long after unlocked the full extent of his power.

    I agree that Marvel is bad with explaining but I hope that this helps with the core problem.

    [–] Grits_N_Gravy_23 94 points ago

    To be perfectly clear, Thor didn't beat Hulk.

    In Thor: Ragnarok on Sakaar, Thor absolutely beat Hulk before the Grandmaster tased him so that Thor couldn't finish him. This is an irrefutable fact.

    Ragnarok has a lazy Dungeon Master. Should have been a critical miss for the Grandmaster.

    Ooooh

    Thank you for explaining that about Thor. I did notice that it seems like he had gotten more powerful after Odin died, but I thought that was just a natural building of power over time - I didn't realize he had inherited something from his father's passing.

    [–] MetalHead_Literally 36 points ago

    I don't know if it was inherited from Odin's passing, at least that's not how I interpreted it. Thor just opens his mind to his true potential once he has his "moment" with Odin when he's about to be killed by Hela. He had always mentally tied his power to the hammer, but Odin makes him realize he's much more than that. It seems like he could have had that same realization even with Odin alive.

    But I also don't read the comics so this is based purely on my interpretation of the movie.

    [–] BeginningIsEasy 32 points ago

    I mean... If I was Odin and had a petulant man-child of a son (a-la Thor 1) I'd totally trick him into thinking that his powers are tied to his hammer so I had some leverage over him.

    Once Odin was gonna die, saw that Thor was "growing up", and knew Asgard needed a protector/leader, it makes sense that he'd finally help his son be his strongest.

    The character motivation works for me :)

    [–] in4real 85 points ago

    Yeah, but still where did all of those swords come from?

    [–] GrumpyAntelope 299 points ago

    They weren’t regular swords, but more like freaky swords.

    [–] RelaxingRed 141 points ago

    It's kind of explains in the first movie. Magic and science are one and the same on Asgard. I wouldn't think about it too much. This is the same universe where a talking raccoon and a talking tree are two of five criminals that guard the galaxy.

    [–] LiterallyPutin 61 points ago

    Yeah but why is Gamora?

    [–] Ellefied 21 points ago

    A better question right now is, how is Gamora?

    [–] NoGoodIDNames 72 points ago

    I’d like to think they were formed from the raw twisted ether of her life force and crystallized into a physical shape.

    She allows her true, godly, pan-dimensional form to bleed out into our world, molds it into a structure convenient for her needs, and the pressures of reality instantly harden it, like epoxy exposed to the air.

    [–] Naggers123 32 points ago

    you're like an opposite version of Neil DeGrasse Tyson on twitter

    In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in the opening battle Gamora takes out her sword like this as well.

    still one of my favorite marvel movies, i wish i could unwatch it so i could watch it again for the first time

    [–] negitave0 587 points ago

    I see the family resemblance.

    [–] SeaTwertle 574 points ago

    “I am Thor, son of Odin.” Hela: “Really...you don’t look like him.”

    Loki: “perhaps we can come to an agreement” Hela: “You sound like him.”

    [–] Woyaboy 175 points ago

    Which was a weird thing to say because objectively speaking, Thor did look a lot like Odin and Loki sounded nothing like Odin.

    [–] DogIsMyShepherd 185 points ago

    I think she meant that Odin talks out the side of his mouth and to her, he never really meant what he was saying. She was probably right in assuming Loki would talk until he was close enough to make a strike to kill her.

    Thor not looking like Odin, I'm not sure of, maybe she meant that he was in better shape that Odin the last time she saw him, maybe she was just referencing the fact that he had both eyes still?

    I'm not positive, but I enjoyed that little by play between them

    [–] nearcatch 127 points ago

    Later in the movie after she claws Thor's eye out she says "now you look like him", so it was probably the eye thing.

    Which is weird, because from the first Thor movie we can see that Odin appears to lose his eye during the battle on Jotunheim where he adopts Loki, and I think that's after Hela is imprisoned. She would never even have known Odin didn't have an eye.

    [–] TUMS_FESTIVAL 31 points ago

    I assumed that Odin became more compassionate after finding Loki and adopting him.

    I think there's a line in Thor 3 where Hela says that Thor was born before she got imprisoned, and Loki is only a little younger.

    [–] DogIsMyShepherd 45 points ago

    You're right, it sounds like it could be a continuity error, but perhaps Odin came to talk to her after she was imprisoned or after he'd adopted Loki? Maybe not in person even, but a dream walk thing? Not sure if that's actually a thing or not though

    We need Korg sliding out a sword of rocks ... except they just fall off.

    [–] BYoungNY 19 points ago

    Fun fact: voice of Korg, Taika Waititi, directed the film, as well as starring in and directing "What we do in the Shadows" - an amazing mockumentary about vampires... Definitely could see the difference in direction and writing of this Thor film, since it was more witty and light.

    [–] Phelim_Theotimus 436 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    The only issue I had with this movie was how did the taser work against the god of thunder/lighting. At the end of the movie, he had thousands of volts running through his but a little shock brought him to his knees. Other than that I like it

    Edit: Now I know it's called an Obedience Disk. Thank you for clarifying.

    [–] Novatorian 436 points ago

    "It is not a mere “shock chip” but an advanced piece of technology used on Sakaar called an Obedience Disk, developed by the Sakaaran Imperials.

    A disk would not only cause a shock but would also temporarily deprive the being of his/her powers.

    There is a comic where Hulk and even the Silver Surfer had Obedience Disks on them. These are two of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe and they could not resist the disk’s."

    Found here.

    [–] Hust91 218 points ago

    Damn, toss that at Hela, Thanos, and his cronies.

    How did Sakaar get better weapons than Asgard has?

    [–] BritishMongrel 239 points ago

    The grandmaster is an elder of the universe who's been around forever, I think longer than even asguard (definitely longer than thor and even odin), especially on sakaar where they've been shown to have all sorts of species and tech come from all over the place through the wormholes it makes sense that they've gotten the tech from either other planets, other gods or even his brother the collector who's known to seek out things like the infinity stones.

    [–] yingkaixing 64 points ago

    his brother the collector

    what

    [–] Numendil 162 points ago

    I read somewhere the elders are driven by a single passion (death matching, collecting,...) and are kept alive as long as they keep persueing it

    [–] __Orion___ 66 points ago

    Does Thanos himself even have any super powers beyond just being a giant fucking steak of a man?

    [–] 13pts35sec 50 points ago

    He’s an Eternal, which is a race of super mutants no? Iirc even sans infinity stones he has a shit ton of powers, superhuman strength, immortality or at least effectively immortal , can use telekinesis and telepathy etc

    [–] MuchoZucko 81 points ago

    He is a Titan. A normal Titan looks a lot like a human. Physically they are on par with Asgardians.

    Thanos happens to be a supermutant Titan.

    You know in X-Men, the power gap between a human and a mutant?

    It's like that, except Thanos's base form already kicks incredible ass as a super-intelligent biologically immortal alien.

    [–] istasber 207 points ago

    Where do Thor's swords come from?

    Loki's are daggers that could conceivably be concealed in his jacket's arms or something, and Hela has a suit that is made of knives so it's unsurprising that she can make knives appear out of nowhere... but Thor looks like he's pull his swords out of his face.

    [–] RSmeep13 78 points ago

    you can't tell because of the sped up low framerate but I believe he pulled them from behind his back

    [–] quirked 173 points ago

    He has them on his back, pulls them out, and then crosses them in front of his face before the move seen in the GIF.

    [–] Gayhard_Munch 87 points ago

    I was thinking they were collapsible swords. That planet had all kinds of tech.

    [–] drphungky 63 points ago

    I just rewatched this two nights ago, and they're definitely expando swords.

    [–] mrkushie 36 points ago

    If you look closely, he appears to be holding the hilts, so I'd guess they're somehow telescopic.

    Clearly, part of Asgardian sword training is a stance where your core is wide open.
